Azerbaijani forces open fire on Armenian positions again

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani forces used various caliber firearms to target the Armenian positions near Yeraskh, Ararat province on Wednesday, August 11. The shooting lasted about five hours, the Defense Army reports.

The Armenian units took suppressive measures to silence the Azerbaijani troops. No casualties were reported, the Defense Ministry added.

Azerbaijan has been violating the ceasefire with both Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, firing from various caliber weapons and even using suicide drones.

Azerbaijani forces violated Armenia’s border in several sections in the provinces of Syunik and Gegharkunik on May 12 and 13 and are still refusing to withdraw their troops from the area. Five Armenian servicemen have been killed in Azerbaijan’s shooting, a dozen others have been wounded, while six troops were captured on May 27, although four of them have already returned home.
